Do You Qualify for Unemployment Compensation?

Unemployment Compensation is available for qualified Pittsburgh, PA workers.  In Pittsburgh, PA,
Unemployment compensation (UC), is money paid to workers who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own.  Any unemployed person may file a claim for UC benefits.  To file a claim online click on this link to the PA Labor & Industry website.  
Specifically, Unemployment Compensation is available to any Pittsburgh employee who is or becomes unemployed, and:

1.  Was paid recorded wages (not under the table) for employment/work in Pennsylvania

2.  Is actively looking for new work. An "active search" must include:  a. Registration with Pennsylvania CareerLink system or its successor agency within thirty (30) days after initial application for benefits.  You can register with CareerLink here; b. Posting a resume with CareerLin; and c. Applying for positions that offer employment and wages similar to those of your previous job that are within a forty-five (45) minute commuting distance.
3.  Is able to work and available for suitable work.

4.  Has been unemployed for a waiting period of one week.

If you have lost your job through no fault of your own and are being denied unemployment compensation benefits, contact a lawyer immediately to learn about your legal rights.  I have helped numerous Pittsburgh workers get their UC benefits reinstated following improper denials.  If you have any questions, please call, email or post a response on my blog.
